101 Innovation Breakthroughs
A big hat tip to Innovation Zen for bringing this book to my attention: 101 Innovation Breakthroughs. Innovation Management Inc., a unit of Monitor Group, has compiled a book of interesting and groundbreaking business innovations:
"101 Innovation Breakthroughs is one of the widest compilation of
interesting and exciting business innovations presented in a unique and
systematic manner. The large number and diversity of examples by
industry and geography in one document, makes it a must-have reference
book for all students and leaders of innovation. It will help you trigger insights and new approaches to drive innovation breakthroughs in your organization!"
The book is available from Monitor for $50. (Actually, it's as much a book as it is a massive, spiral-bound notebook)

Both schizophrenics and people with a common personality type share similar brain patterns.
- A new study shows that people with a common personality type share brain activity with patients diagnosed with schizophrenia.
- The study gives insight into how the brain activity associated with mental illnesses relates to brain activity in healthy individuals.
- This finding not only improves our understanding of how the brain works but may one day be applied to treatments.
It's a development that could one day lead to much better treatments for osteoporosis, joint damage, and bone fractures.
- Scientists have isolated skeletal stem cells in adult and fetal bones for the first time.
- These cells could one day help treat damaged bone and cartilage.
- The team was able to grow skeletal stem cells from cells found within liposuctioned fat.
Gut bacteria play an important role in how you feel and think and how well your body fights off disease. New research shows that exercise can give your gut bacteria a boost.
- Two studies from the University of Illinois show that gut bacteria can be changed by exercise alone.
- Our understanding of how gut bacteria impacts our overall health is an emerging field, and this research sheds light on the many different ways exercise affects your body.
- Exercising to improve your gut bacteria will prevent diseases and encourage brain health.
